Wet Felted Geode Workshop at the Beekman 1802 Harvest Festival!

Grey Fox Felting will be a part of the New York Makers Village at the 10th Annual Beekman 1802 Harvest Festival, and we’re so excited to host this special workshop at the event!

In this beginner felting workshop, each participant will learn how to layer colorful wool fiber to create a felted ball, which will then be cut open at the end of the workshop to reveal a unique geode!  We’ll be using the process of wet felting, which requires only soap, water, wool, and your hands to create felt. Unlike needle felting, there are no needles involved in this process, making it a wonderful activity for children as well as adults! All materials are included, and you’ll leave the workshop with a beautiful geode to display in your home.
